Our talented beekeepers grew up learning about bees and working in the family business started by their parents here in Central Otago. Every Spring, the team ensure the 5,000 hives are strong and healthy, ready for pollination and harvest. The honey flow begins in November as the fragrant wild thyme flowers across the arid hillsides. During the Summer season the bees journey throughout Central Otago and South Westland as each floral variety blooms. The unique honeys are extracted in our purpose built facility in Bannockburn, right through into Autumn, when hives are then prepared for Winter; a well-earned time of rest for bees and beekeepers.About Forage & Gold
Kamahi is foraged in the South Island West Coast forests, our honey has a sophisticated flavour profile with complex flavours and after tones to delight the taste buds. Perfect to pair with soft cheeses or to enhance the honey flavour required for speciality dishes.
Vipers Bugloss flowers are loved by bees for their bright blue flowers and brilliant red stamens, the prickly stemmed Viper’s Bugloss plant is perfectly suited to the rocky and rugged Central Otago landscape where it thrives.
Thyme is a local favourite and is only produced in Central Otago (and the Mediterranean). Thyme is an ancient herb that is much loved for its antimicrobial, antibacterial and antiviral properties.
Clover honey From the high country pastures of Central Otago, is a sweet kiwi favourite, loved by all for it’s nostalgic taste of home and simple nourishing food.

What is a Circular System
Return your jar... (optional)
Glass is the most sustainable package on earth and wanting to be part of the solution to creating a better world, we package our honey in glass jars and are creating a circular system that ensures everyone receives their honey fix, while creating as little waste as possible.
A circular economy is a systematic approach to economic development designed to benefit businesses, society, and the environment. In contrast to the ‘take-make-waste’ linear model, a circular economy is regenerative by design and aims to gradually decouple growth from the consumption of finite resources” (MacArthur, 2018).
Remove label, clean and dry your jar and return either in person or via post to The Honey Shed, 230 Bannockburn Road.
